This is the story of a young man who was born in The East, grew up there and in the Pacific Northwest (USA), and was educated in Mexico, and the East Coast (USA). Thereafter, he trained to become a general surgeon in the Mideast (USA), a.k.a. the North Coast (USA) , then a Heart Surgeon in the Deep South (USA). After practicing Chest Surgery for several years he developed an illness that prevented him from pursuing his vocation - Surgery - and found his avocation - his family. As has been said before, as Yogi Berra said, "It ain't over, till it's over!"
